I have always wanted to start my own photography company. Unfortunately photography is a very tough industry to break through. There are so many wedding, portrait, senior photographers out there that if I were to ever start my own business I would love to focus on product photography. Being a blogger and taking photographs of the items I get to review has helped me better understand how to catch people’s attention via images. One of the downsides to opening a photography business is that you require a lot of equipment to do a good job, and every item is just so expensive! So, I have my to-get list and now, thanks to TheLAShop.com I have crossed off a new piece, a Photography Portable Backdrop Kit! Yeah!
When I was given the opportunity of working together with TheLAShop on a review I just had to say Yes! to this backdrop. I mean, every photographer needs one! Plus, there are so many other uses to it.
The Photography Portable Backdrop comes in its own case (phew) which just made me very happy. I have to carry my tripod with me if I want to use it outside of home, so I was so not going to carry the photography backdrop with me wherever I need to use it.
These stands can be set up to whatever height you need (as long as it does not exceed 8′). One feature I really like is that you can make this backdrop as long as you like. The kit comes with 4 different rods which you can use to set the length at your liking.
Professional Background/Backdrop Support:
- Strong aluminum alloy construction.
- 8-1/5 ft Max. fully extended height and 2-2/5 ft Min. height.
- Supports background up to 10 ft width.
- Four-section separate bars can adjust width from 5 ft to 10 ft easily.
- Extra wide footprint with rubber tips for more stability.
- Simple press-to-lock locks provide fast precise height adjustment.
- Folding frame design for freewill lighting position setting and easier storage.
Unfortunately the Photography Portable Backdrop does not come with a backdrops, those I still have to buy myself (and they are not expensive, this backdrop measures 8′ x 10′, so you can simply go to the fabric store and buy whatever fabric you’d like to use as your backdrop). So, since I had no backdrops and I had my oldest son’s 5th birthday party coming up I decided to turn it into a party backdrop for silly photos!!
The original plan for the party was to have it at Cornwall Park but, be it our great luck, that was the only day of the week it rained. Yeah. So the party had to move inside which meant that the kiddos completely overlooked the photobooth I made. Oh, well. At least they still had a blast!
Halfway through the party the sun decided to come out so we all headed to the playground across the road to have some fun.
I did get to take a few photos of the boys infront of the backdrop. I had even more on my phone which I unfortunately lost when I plugged my phone to my computer…somehow I lost all the images and videos I had stored in it. Darn you iPhone.
At the end of the day I let the kiddos run through it and tear it down.
Picture 4 boys ages 6 to 3 hanging from the backdrop. I almost had a heart attack but my heart was able to rest once I realized that the backdrop was strong enough to carry their weight just fine. It did fall and twisted on itself, but came out without a scratch. Phew!
So, if you are looking into buying photography equipment for your self, or your business, give this backdrop a try! At $69.99 it is well worth it!
